Craig’s List: Dan Shake

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Every fortnight, RTRFM’s Craig Hollywood brings us a little taste of what to expect from Tuesday’s Full Frequency…

It’s no surprise that the Black Acre label are pretty damn excited about starting 2015 with a 12” from new sensation on the circuit Dan Shake. He is the first artist outside of Detroit to cut his teeth on Moodymann’s Mahogani Music, winning plaudits here and across the Atlantic for his catchy groove laden 3AM Jazz Club EP. Now with much anticipation, the Tony Allen & Fela Kuti acolyte returns with two crunchy Dilla-eque takes on soulful club music.

“Out of Sight” is a carefully constructed dance floor number packed with low-end theory and seductive vocal stabs. Low-slung fuzzy bass swinging perfectly between ghost-horns and driving drums.

Make sure and jump onto this one, it’s released through Black Acre on Feb 2.

Full Frequency with Craig Hollywood airs every Tuesday at 3PM (GMT+8) on RTRFM 92.1 in Perth, Australia. You can livestream RTRFM right here.
